We, the yearbook staff, wish to dedicate the 1975 Paragon to Mr. James
L. Larabee, R.N. , M.Ed. As the Director of the School of Nursing, he
came into contact with many of the student's trials and tribulations. He
met these problems with understanding and consideration. We will remem-
ber Mr. Larabee by his two most outstanding traits as a man with many
faces and his favorite saying, "The Door swings both ways".

On April 2, 1975 the Students and Faculty of
LVMH sponsored a surprise potluck dinner in hon-
or of Mr. J. Larabee. Special presentations
were made by Kathy Chesrown, Sue Molloy, and
Sarah Smith on behalf of the Senior and Junior
Classes and the Student Body.
Many thanks to Mr. Larabee for his good leader-
ship and friendship!
"And furthermore. . . ", says Mrs. Spring, Head
Nurse on 4 North. By the look on Debbie's face she's
really paying attention.

students about Pediatrics. She was loved by all.

Don't throw up on me, kid.
If a child lives with criticism,
He learns to condem.
If a child lives with hostility,
He learns to fight.
If a child lives with ridicule,
He learns to be shy.
If a child lives with shame,
He learns to feel guilty.
If a child lives with tolerance,
He learns to be patient.
If a child lives with encouragement,
He learns confidence.
If a child lives with praise,
He learns to appreciate.
If a child lives with fairness,
He learns justice.
If a child lives with security
He learns to have faith.
If a child lives with approval,
He learns to like himself.
If a child lives with friendship,
He learns to find love in the world.
Patty prepares for a long day of work and learning.
There is never a dull day in Surgery, right Mrs.
Surely you are not tired after a day in surgery
I just don't believe this charting!
The Pits show devoted nursing! I can see her Epiglottis!
Noma's Birthday Party! Does this mean I'm Pregnant!
Teacher for the day! !

OUR ILLUSTRIOUS EDITOR
The yearbook staff was busy as usual this year meeting
the deadlines along with taking pictures and making
contacts for advertisements. The student body sold
candy as a money-making project for the "Paragon".
In October the staff attended a seminar at the Elk's
Club and learned of several new ideas. Sandy Mor-
rison was typing manager, and Deb Weicherding was
in charge of ads. Mrs. Taber, our sponsor, helped us
in numerous ways also.
The Danville chapter of the Student Nurses Assoc-
iation of Illinois was busy throughout the year
with conventions, banquets, seminars, meetings,
and other various activities. This club is also
active in the national organization.

With a bit of "encouragement", Mary Jo comes up with a mouthful!
Mary Jo Parsons exhibits her new build while Vickie
Lampe and Tina Wright follow reluctantly.
Vickie Brownfield, it looks as if you have really been
| studying hard lately. Following in her footsteps (?) are
Connie Tenny and Sue Molloy.
Ann Irvin, Debbie LeClair, Jayne Fletcher, and Deb-
bie Weicherding decide on which surgical procedure
to utilize in this case.
Awhhh, Debbie, You're so cute ! !
Berth Butts and Company . . .
Our reputable hospital staff! !
Each year the student body sponsors the "Stu-
dent-Faculty Follies". This is the evening
when all of the students and instructors get
together and really "let their hair down" for
an evening full of laughs.
The Junior- Senior Banquet is given in the honor of the graduating Senior
class by the Junior class. It is a way for members of both classes to say
farewell and best wishes for the memories that will last throughout the
years to come. The Class of 1975 wishes to thank the Class of 1976 for
all of the hard work and time that was spent to make this evening a
CONGRATULATIONS AND BEST WISHES CLASS OF 1975! !
How did you do THAT??
Doctor Hoffman was the guest
speaker of the evening.
We all thoroughly enjoyed the occupational telephone monologues by Mr. and
Mrs. Roth, You should have known better than
to pull the table apart at the middle.
A HAPPY SENIOR!!
Mrs. Becky Tanner was chosen as Ms. Congeniality of
the 1975 Senior Class. She was elected by her class-
mates for her outstanding personality and friendship
throughout the years at LVMH.
Kathy, are you having fun! ! !
One of the Senior's Spring activities included a bus
ride to Chicigo where the class toured the Cook County
Hospital. The group left early in the morning and after
a very interesting and educational day they returned to
Danville, tired but happy.
That's one good trait about the LVMH students
--they're so "professional" !
Graduation exercises for the Class of 1975 were held on
Sunday, May 11 at St. James Methodist Church. Speakers
included Dr. William Grady, Rev. Newhall, Sister Paul
Therese who gave the address, invocation, and benedic-
Mr. James Larabee presented the diplomas to the grad-
uates, and Mrs. Kathleen Taber distributed the Nursing
pins. The Junior Class presented special music.

No man is an island, entire of itself; every man is a piece of the Conti-
nent, a part of the main; if a clod be washed away by the sea, Europe is
the less, as well as if a manor of thy friends or of thine own were; any
man's death diminishes me, becuase I am involved in mankind; and
therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls; it tolls for thee.
-- John Donne
Class Of 1975 Prophecy
The year is 2000, 25 years into the future. Just imagine what can happen to you in 25 short years.
First we see Nancy Inman. Poor Nancy has been doomed to spinsterhood and is serving as a missionary to a tribe of liberated
women in the congo.
Sue Sargent, now at Mercy Hospital has finally found the real thing for the hundred and eightieth time with a newly ad-
mitted U of I football player.
Mary Ann Altman has struck oil in South Dakota and is finally able to pay back phone bills from LVMH.
Becky Tanner is now administrator at Williamsport Hospital.
Judy Carpenter passed her state boards with flying colors but is now in the hospital with a broken leg received when she fell
from her motorcycle.
Sarah Smith has become a leader in public health nursing. Her articles on Swinging Singles Diseases have become interna-
tionally famous. Sarah is now working on her first book, Cures of Cosmo Girls.
Debra Armantrout finally made the plunge, called Dr. Spencer and made an appointment for a total freckle-ectomy.
You wouldn't even know Mildred Burrows. She's down to a hundred and twenty pounds and is acting like a spring chicken.
Marian Norman is now the mother of six. After the first one, the rest just kept on coming. She is also the head nurse on
the Pediatric ward.
Now that J.L. has left, Christine Holycross has taken over the school and is eagerly awaiting that big plush office on fifth
Vickie Brownfield has put her husband to work trying to think of ways to help her keep the V.A. patients from chasing after
her when she wears dresses to work.
Marylin Yowell has just been picked for Super Nurse of the Year, due to her lightening-f ast decisions on the floor.
LuAnn Lindgren is still flashing off her new maroon car, but it will never match up to her red hair.
Lynn Blackford will be celebrating her silver anniversary in two weeks. Senility has finally caught up with those two, Clark
thinks he's Superman (alias Clark Kent) and Lynn thinks she is Lois Lane.
After working in Union Hospital's Nursery for twenty years, Kathy Williamson decided to devote her time to being president
of the American Nurse's Association.
Now we see Myra Henry, sitting in the nurses station in the Peds ward at Lakeview knitting and dreaming of all the little
Bubbas at home.
Pat Holden has her own factory too. She is making sexy sunglasses just like hers. The biggest feature is the kiddies model.
Instead of kittens, they have bedpans on the corners.
Patty Asche has her own factory too. She has designed Patty's Pumps Nursing Shoes. Her company guarantees to make you
taller than the Pediatric patients.
Linda Ribbing is publishing her 33rd edition of Ribbing's Revues-A Guide for Young Brides.
Annette Okerlund has a new best seller out. Everything You've Wanted to Know About Studying But Were Afraid to Ask.
And here's Mrs. B.j. Pearson, the former Kathi Chesrown listening to STANDING IN THE WATER??? by Ozark Mountain
Jeanne Jenkins is now a public health nurse concentrating on Health standards of bars such as Freddies, the Underground, the
Big Barrel, etc.
And here's Fred Hill, director of the AMNA, American Male Nurse's Association.
Debbie Weicherding is now Mother Wich at St. Joe's Convent.
Pam Merrick is acting administrator of the Shelter Care Home for Nervous Nurse's. Ms. Merrick has extra- ordinary insight
into their needs having been there herself.
Juli Blankenship is a nun at Mother Weicherdering's Convent. She tried to get into Fred Hill's AMNA but was discriminated
against due to her sex.
Nancy Ebersol is the industrial nurse at MACDonald's and is reportedly having an affair with Ronald MacDonald.
Jackie Willis, discouraged with the lack of enthusiasm from nursing students was admitted to Mr. Merrick's Shelter Home
for Nervous Nurse's.
Sandy Morrison, while sleeping at her apartment building, saved everyone by running down the halls at 4 o'clock in the
morning yelling, "You guys, get up. There's a storm coming!" Sandy received a Citation for Bravery but she also re-
ceived one for disturbing the peace.
So completes our journey into the future. And who knows, we just might have been right about our predictions ! ! !

Your children are not your children.
They are the sons and daughters of Life's longing for itself.
They come through you but not from you,
And though they are with you yet they belong not to you.
You may give them your love but not your thoughts,
For they have their own thoughts.
You may house their bodies but not their souls,
For their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow, which you
cannot visit, not even in your dreams.
You may strive to be like them, but seek not to make them
For life goes not backward nor tarries with yesterday.
You are the bows from which your children as living
arrows are sent forth.
The archer sees the mark upon the parth of the infinite,
and He bends you with His might that His arrows may go
swift and far.
Let your bending in the archer's hand be for gladness;
For even as He loves the arrow that flies, so He loves also
the bow that is stable.

to the Class
for yesterday is but a dream,
and to-morrow is only a vision;
but to-day well lived makes every
yesterday a dream of happiness
and every to-morrow a vision of hope,
look well therefore to this day!
from The Saluations of the Dawn,
from the Sanskirt.
Take time for friendship when you can.
The hours fly swiftly, and the need
That presses on your fellowman
May fade away at equal speed
And you may sigh before the end
That you have failed to play the friend.
Not all life's pride is born of fame;
Not all the joy from work is won.
Too Late we hang our heads in shame,
Remembering good we could have done;
Too Late we wish that we had stayed
To comfort those who called for aid.
Take time to do the little things
Which leave the satisfactory thought,
When other joys have taken wings,
That we have labored as we ought;
That in a world where all contend,
We often stopped to be a friend.
Edgar A. Guest
